Harley-Davidson has introduced a new Sporter, the Iron 883, which features blackened components, fork gaiters, drag-style handlebars, a staggered exhaust, side-mounted licence plate, and a one-piece seat.
The new Sportster is powered by the standard 883 cc V-Twin Evolution Sportster motor.
Seat height is only 643 mm (25.3 in) and a passenger seat and backrest can be added.
Judging by Deeley Harley-Davidson’s press announcement, Joseph Conrad himself might have ridden the Iron 883, if he’d had the chance: "The black powder-coated 883 cc Evolution powertrain with black covers takes the Iron 883 bike deep into the heart of darkness. With Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection (ESPFI) and performance tuning with a flat torque curve, the Iron 883 delivers plenty of power for the city scene. From the pipes on the straight cut shorty dual exhaust flows the distinctive American V-Twin sound. A ticket to ride the Iron 883 starts at just $9,569 Canadian MSRP, leaving plenty of freedom for customization."
The new Sportster will be on view at the Quebec City, Moncton, and Montreal MMIC motorcycle shows.
